The Brock’s Horror Film Pick #28: The Shining (Kubrick/Nicholson version)

A top horror film list is not complete when you don’t put the “The Shining”, in there. I’ve always loved the original “Shining”, movie. Such a classic. It is Nicholson’s best role other than “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest”. A great movie to watch on Halloween with the whole family. A lot of people are going to get bored at the start of the movie with that 3 minute long opening credits sequence with the boring music, but they put that in there for a reason. The opening credits sequence is just an introduction, leading you up to the Overlook Hotel as the family travels there on the road. This is the movie that Stephen King even hated himself, but the movie still gets a lot of praise and respect by a lot of fans to this day. It is one of most watched movies around Halloween season. This has always been a great flick.
